Maybe we should re-think that attitude, cause if your doing it right you spend one third of your life in bed. I might be spending more, with my great love of the nap. Some of us are sleeping on crappy handmedowns and futons thinking its ok as long as we have a place to sleep. I would like to point out that we only get one body (with some knee and hip exceptions) and we really should look after it as best we can. I think being able to rest well is as if not more important than eating right and exercises.
An article at CTV says:
Some Signs You May Need A New Mattress:
- You wake up with stiffness, numbness, aches and pains
- You had a better night's sleep somewhere other than your own bed (such as a hotel)
- Your mattress shows visible signs of overuse (it sags, has lumps, the interior is exposed, etc.)
- Your mattress is 5 - 7 years old
I say its national nap day, just make sure you have a good place to crash!
